TY  - JOUR
AB - Most of small size wastewater treatment plants use simple control strategies based on dissolved oxygen concentration, redox potential or ammonia concentrations. Dynamic optimisation methods are here applied to improve both economic and reliability performances of small size wastewater treatment plants equipped with mechanical surface aerators. The aeration policy which minimises the energy consumption and satisfies discharge requirements under specified constraints (process and physical constraints) is then determined. The comparison between rule-based control policies and optimised aeration strategies showed that the optimised aeration profiles lead to reductions of energy consumption of about 40%.
